2018 World Salt Symposium
Groundbreaking Evidence on Salt and Health to be presented
Naples, FL, USA, Aug. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Tenth World Salt Symposium will be held June 19-21, 2018 in Park City, Utah, and will feature nearly 100 presentations from around the globe covering all topics related to salt. Starting in the 1960's, people from around the world have gathered to share information on the health benefits and uses of salt, salt mining practices, and solar salt production. The last such meeting was held in Beijing, China in 2009. The extended period between these conferences ensures a far-reaching and inclusive technical content. This is, without doubt, the most important international meeting focused on the subject of salt.
The Tenth World Salt Symposium is organized by the Salt Institute, in cooperation with several other salt organizations around the world. The World Salt Symposium focuses on the latest research and development in the international salt sector. It covers a wide spectrum of subjects, embracing the science, engineering, technology, economics and history of all forms of sodium chloride salt and their uses. As a broad international platform, the 2018 World Salt Symposium will enable researchers, producers and users of salt to become acquainted with the latest developments and technologies in this important industrial area.
